We quibbled over vanilla or chocolate
Frozen custard or hand churned
Strolled on the boardwalk

Bought matching T-shirts we’ll never wear
Ate hot dogs with everything
Sipped Slurpees that turned our tongues blue

No cares, no worries, no hurry
Until the sun slipped below the horizon
And the sky put on its pink nighty

We glanced at each other, eye to eye
And our hearts winked
You wrenched the oars of our canoe

From their locks and paddled like a robot
Back to the secluded cabin on the lake
Vacation nirvana

  1. Haha. Nice. Sounds like a great vacation
    and what will soon be a very cozy cabin

    fun imagery as well, sky in a pink nighty.
    ha. wish i would have thought of that one.


  2. “the sky put on its pink nighty”–What a clever description….very lovely and spot on to set the mood for going back to your secluded cabin on the lake 😉
